So you wanna be startin' something? Head over to the Madrone Lounge this Saturday, when the legendary Prince vs. Michael Jackson party makes its first official SF appearance since MJ's passing.

Fresh off of victorious stops in Seattle and Portland, this edition of PVMJ promises to be very special indeed, with a 6-hour extended version of the monthly party, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Purple Rain as well as honoring Jackson's memory.

And here's a little note from PVMJ DJ Dave Paul about requests: "We will gladly take your song request, but that doesn't mean we will be able to put the song on right away and we may not even be able to play your request. All depends on the vibe of the crowd and time constraints. If you ask for a song and we inform you that we have already played that song please do not insist on us playing it again. We only play a song once in the night. There is just too much music from both Prince and Michael for us to play a song twice. If you weren't at the venue yet, outside smoking or not paying attention we are sorry but we only play a song once. Do not request anything by any other artist not associated with Prince or Michael Jackson. You're just wasting your time and ours." Word!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
